A Decent Soundtracks To A Great Film
on 18 February 2013
Having seen the film recently I was sold on the idea of buying the soundtrack as I quite enjoyed the film and, in watching the film, realised the music was very good. However, after buying this soundtrack my opinion has changed. There are certainly tracks I love (Bug Hunt by Skrillex and Sugar Rush by AKB48 being two of them) and was impressed to see artists such as Skrillex and AKB48 appear in such a mainstream movie, the former being a prominent dubstep artist and the latter being a J-Pop band, though I'm still impressed. My problem with it comes from the "quiet songs", the ones created by the composer of the film. While they're not bad and sound totally fine there's nothing very exciting about them, they sound very much like any other orchestral soundtrack, with very few remarkable tracks. Personally speaking it's good value, for teh amount of tracks you get, though don't expect this to become your favourite soundtrack.
